In 1934, BMW debuted the R7 concept motorcycle during the height of the Art Deco style. The R7 was never made but would inspire the later R17 and R5 models. Thought to be lost until 2005, the R7 was rediscovered and fully restored to its former glory. That is the story behind Nmoto‘s Nostalgia R7, an exacting recreation of the stunning original built on BMW’s current R nineT.
Every detail from the R7 is there, from the partially-open fenders to the fish-fin exhaust pipes, wire wheels, and headlight-speedometer combo. The engine is enclosed in aerodynamic panels with exposed cylinder heads, all covered in black with white pinstriping the highlight the flow of the bodywork. Provide your own R nineT and you can walk away with one of the best custom motorcycles on the road. But you can always check other coolest bikes: 25 Best Vintage Motorcycles.
